A SCHOONER STOLEN.
The Star of Freedom has Been Missing
for Two Weeks.
San Francisco, March 25. The little
schooner Star of Freedom has been
stolen and is now probably engaged In
some smuggling scheme along the
coast. The vessel has been missing for
two weeks. Some time ago a man
named Bartels desired to charter the
Star of Freedom, but the owner would
not let him have the schooner. Bar
tels achieved some notoriety about
two years ago when he arrived in port
on the schooner Achilles, from Port
land, Oregon. A telegram was received
by Collector Wise .from Portland re
questing him to hold the vessel on her
arrival as she had been stolen. Bar
tels was not prosecuted as he claimed
be was part owner in the Achillea.

" MAY OA USB INTERVENTION.
The Attack on Li Hungi Chang May
' Cause Foreign Powers to Step In.
'Washington, March 25. Information
coming to the Japanese legation is to
the effect that LI Hung Chang's wound
is not dangerous, except as complica
tions may develop! It Is on the fleshy
part of the face, and fortunately no
part of the skull has been fractured o
any vital organs touched. Prince Li's
advanced- age and several constitu
tional disorders iwfodch make him al
most an Invalid, may aggravate a no
wise harmful wound. On his arrival
at Slmonosaka he was too sick to leave
the ship that brought him. He had to
be carried about, this fclelng a. necessity
In his case, as well as an honor due
his rank. The officials of the Japanese
le ration say the offender will be oharg
ed with treason, as the assault Is not
only against the person of Li Hung
Chang, but against the Chinese govern
ment. It is prdblable also that theJ

vlctlon by court-martial would mean
that the offender would be shot. Dip
lomats her4 are Inclined ito believe that
the entire peace negotiations may be
broken off by the assault, by affording
a pretext for European intervention
LI ihimself will prevent such a failure
however, if ft Is possible.
Officials here regard it as sttled that
China and Japan have reached an un
derstanding by which the former .will
extend her territory south from Vladl
vostock so as to keep the harbor open
the year around. This has been the
acquisition iRuasia has long sought
as It gives an eastern outlet to the
Oreat Siberian railroad.

genuineness, both slhOuld lose every
